Summary – How to Stop the Screen from Turning Off on an iPhone 14
- Open Settings.
- Select Display & Brightness.
- Choose Auto-Lock.
- Tap Never.
The iPhone 14 screen will turn itself off after a minute or two of inactivity by default.
In many situations, this can be useful, as the screen can not only drain your battery, but if the device is unlocked, then anyone with physical access to it would be able to open things like your text messages and emails and potentially see information that you don’t want them to.
But you might discover that you don’t want the screen to lock itself automatically if you are following a tutorial or a recipe, where you need to constantly reference something on the phone, and you don’t want to keep unlocking it.
This is the perfect scenario to keep the iPhone screen from locking itself.
Hopefully, our how to keep screen on iPhone 14 tutorial above has shown you how to find and adjust this setting so that you are able to manage your screen’s awake time in a manner that is more useful to you.
